This event, schedule for Tuesday, May 22, at noon, has been cancelled due to the accidental death of seven members of Radhanath Swami's Ashram in India. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families involved and to Swami's entire community. The event will be rescheduled in the near future. At that time he will speak at ISH on "Spirituality in Healthcare." He says “Medicine should not just be looked at as a profession, but as a way for improving people’s life.”
These are the words of Radhanath Swami, who regularly speaks on the benefits of Bhakti-yoga throughout India, Europe and North America to heads of state, corporate leaders, health care professionals and the international yoga community. Having inspired the formation of a Spiritual Care Department at the Bhaktivedanta Hospital, he was invited by the Association of Medical Consultants to address leading physicians in Mumbai on "Spirituality in Healthcare".
Based at Mumbai's Radha Gopinath Ashram for the past twenty-five years, he guides the community’s development and has directed a number of acclaimed social action projects including Midday Meals, which daily serves more than 260,000 plates of sanctified vegetarian food to the children of the slums of Mumbai. He has also worked to establish missionary hospitals and eye camps, eco-friendly farms, schools and ashrams, a hospice, an orphanage, and a number of emergency relief programs throughout India.
